Janet Jackson admits bare truth

Janet Jackson has admitted planning the "costume reveal" dance sequence in which one of her breasts was exposed on live TV before 89 million viewers.
The incident during the Super Bowl half time show, which Jackson's co-performer Justin Timberlake had taken the blame for, has drawn criticism from family groups and could result in millions in government fines.
Initially billed as an accident, Jackson apologised for displaying one of her breasts late on Monday in a statement released on MTV's website.
"The decision to have a costume reveal at the end of my halftime show performance was made after final rehearsals," Jackson said in the statement. "MTV was completely unaware of it. It was not my intention that it go as far as it did. I apologise to anyone offended - including the audience, MTV, CBS and the NFL."
But Michael Powell, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, has called the brief display "a classless, crass and deplorable stunt". Mr Powell says the action against television network CBS for briefly showing the incident will be "thorough and swift." Currently, $27,500 is the largest fine the FCC can levy.
Since Sunday, roughly the same number of internet news pages had been created about Jackson as had been created about President Bush's budget proposal, according to a Google news search.
Joe Saltzman, professor at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication, who studies media and pop culture. "Big deal. We saw Janet Jackson's breast. This is just the most absurd thing I've ever witnessed."
Saltzman said he attributes the racket about Jackson's exposure not to the flesh but rather to a conservative portion of the population, reports www.courierpress.com. (http://www.courierpress.com.)
